13th hole @ Cullen "Red Craig" : 152 yard blind par 3 with green tucked behind a massive rocky outcrop with another massive rocky outcrop blocking the safe route. Easy 8 iron on a calm day but you don't often get them and impossible to fire in a low wind cheater - great hole but definitely weird.

The Witches course in South Carolina is just a weird place, played in early morning fog which added to the vibes. Definitely one not to venture off the fairway as there are gators waiting for stray golfers...

The 5th Hole at Prestwick Golf Club in Scotland ) original home to the British Open) is a blind Par 3. You have to hit over hill filled with gorse to a green on the other side, if you CANT hit 150M in the air then  you are RS

The 16th hole on Moonah Legends course. 

black tee 185m

white tees 159m

red 123m

 

degree of difficulty depending on pin placement.

 

biggest green in the world, hard to miss the green, 

 

BUT you can be on the wrong level facing a 30 to 40m putt, and a 3 or 4 putt is certain.

Not with a 0.6 second backswing on your putter stroke it isn't.

even with 0.6 second backswing, 3 putting, on any green is possible, if cannot read the break(s) of green correct.

if dont hit on correct line the putt will not have a chance.

 

Thats why the green on the hole mentioned is a scary prospect, as putt can break 3 different ways.
